Christmas Tree Almond Bark Recipe
Christmas Tree Almond Bark Recipe is so much fun to make. It is sure to add to your holiday enjoyment.
You can make this tree with any assortment of decorations you choose. My choice was to use red and green lifesavers, sixlets, pretzels and trail mix.
Christmas Tree Almond Bark Recipe in the Mold:
The secret to the mold is to cut up a shirt box. I just cut off the sides of the box, put the two pieces together and folded in the appropriate places. Then I taped the two sides together at the top point. Finally, I cut another piece for the bottom, coming to a slight point and taped to the existing bottom tabs (there was not enough for them to come together). I will serve the cut-up pieces of Christmas Tree Almond Bark Recipe alongside my Marbled Peppermint Fudge on my holiday table.
